Blog swap! Recycled shirt sleeve wine bag tutorial
Hello there! We're thrilled to be swapping blogs with Suzannah today!
kirstin and jordan
Pair this with the fact that our life seems to be one. constant. baby. boom. It is lovely, really. Glowing pregnant friends and tons of chances to throw baby showers and a constant need for champagne/sparkling cider to deliver to brand new parents in hospitals. Like I said, lovely. And, at the same time, quite the chance for upcycling my pile of sleeves into fun and functional wine bags.
Care to join me? You'll need:
-the sleeve from a button up shirt (these go quick, so if you have a little time grab a few sleeves and you'll have a whole stash of wine bags ready for last minute champagne deliveries)
-a sewing machine
-ribbon (maybe a yard or so)
1. Trim your sleeve so that it's about as tall as a wine bottle (a foot and a half-ish). Make sure that your cut is parallel to the sleeve cuff.
4. Turn your sleeve right side in. Slip a ribbon through the opening at the cuff. This will fit around the 'neck' of your bottle to cinch the bag closed.
Thanks to Suzannah for letting us be a part of her blog world today! When you have a minute, come visit us at the kojodesigns blog... Happy wine bag crafting, friends!
